Product of the Week

Our friend Kyle dropped by Tuesday this week for dinner. He and Brian and have brewing some beer in our basement so we've had the excuse to get him out to Holland more frequently. Since I'm not doing much alcohol drinking anymore, Kyle brought me some beer of my own - various root beers made with real sugar cane (none of that artificial crud). I first drank a Frosty rootbeer. That was delicious and had a strong kick to it. The next night I enjoyed one of these frosty treats.



Ho Doctor! This is a delicious rootbeer!! It has a creamy softness to it much like cream soda, but keeps a slight kick. Kyle said we should try making floats out of them, but now that I'm thinking about it, it tastes like the icecream has already melted into it. I love this so much that I've demanded Brian go out and find cases of it to bring home. Move over Coke Zero, I have a new love in my life.

Scillanio's has it, as does Kingma's Market. Also, I think Amazon.com sells it, and several other online retailers. Huzzah!!

Kingma's I think is on the NE side of GR. I'll have to pick some up for you once I can drive again! It's a great alternative! YUM!

"brewing beer in our basement" sounds so funny. Mmmmmm, root beer is a very good idea instead of coke zero.

Their website says they sell it at Trader Joe's, so I drove 20 miles to get some and try it. Unfortunately, Trader Joe's quit carrying it around the beginning of the year. I didn't want my trip to be all for naught, so I bought some Virgil's Root Beer. I wasn't all that impressed when I first tried Virgil's, but I had my second bottle with a frosty mug, which helped a bit. Good story, huh?
